Swedish Chef Björn Frantzén Takes Over Sweden's Twitter Account

A chef is the latest to take the helm of Sweden's Twitter account, which each week charges a different citizen with maintaining the country's presence on the social networking site.

Björn Frantzén is the executive chef of Frantzén/Lindeberg, a two-star Michelin restaurant in Stockholm. Despite his impressive resume, Frantzén has predictably been the target of more than a few Muppet jokes.

Frantzén has responded cooly to "Swedish Chef" comparisons:

@sweden / Björn
I'm sorry to inform you. But as far as I know, no one in Sweden really cares about the Swedish chef from The Muppets...Okay?

Aside from deflecting jokes, Frantzén has spent the week dishing out cooking and kitchen advice and showing off more than a few drool-worthy photos from inside his kitchen. He'll finish out the week on the account, at which point another Swedish citizen will take over.

In the meantime, take a look at some of Frantzén's choicest tweets in the gallery below.
